The U.S. House of Representatives holds the annual high school visual art competition to encourage and recognize artistic talent in each congressional district. Since 1982, hundreds of thousands of students nationwide have participated in the Congressional Art Competition. In 2023, Oak Harbor High School’s Mattie Jones won the districtwide competition with her piece, “Lost in Creativity,” which has been on display in the U.S. Capitol for the past year.
